    Default SLI... holy crap in a liquid crystal

    http://www.sagernotebook.com/pages/go_np5950.html

    Boasting as the industry's first SLI 19" widescreen display notebook. Don't know if that's technically true or not, but I can't check right now... my jaw is on the floor.


    I don't know why they didn't drom an X2 model in there as apposed to the ML-44 though.

    EDIT:
    Oh... guess there are quite a few of them. Heehee. Oh well, I still wonder how hot these beasts must get. Real b***-burners. XD

    Old. =p

    Knew about that for months.


    While we are at news,

    You should see that madly liquid nitrogen cooled overclocked Core 2 Extreme QX6700 (quad-core) @ 4.2GHz with a similaly-cooled superclocked NVIDIA GEFORCE 8800GTX with crazyclocked water-cooled DDR2 PC-9000 (@ 1.4GHz @ 2.6V).

    Oh and you should see those Intel Wolfsdale (Penryn Architecture) dual cores. They are the first 45nm process processors with 6MB L2 cache and clocked really high (4GHz or above thanks to the cooler, more efficient 45nm process).
    AMD's counter to that is the Antares, a 65nm process CPU with 3MB L3 cache (yay, L3 cache returns after the failure of the Gallatin Pentium 4 Extreme Editions).

    Oh and Intel's Yorkfield has four cores with 2x6MB L2 cache clocked at 3.6-4.0GHz (two Wolfsdale in one package) and it will be able to do EIGHT SIMULTANEOUS THREADS. Its enemy is AMD's Altair (two Antares in one).


    AND ALL THIS IS COMING OUT Q2-Q3 NEXT YEAR!
    OMGWTFBBQMYWALLETWILLBLEED

    Oh and Intel's Core microarchitecture will end with the Wolfsdale and the NEHALEM microarchitecture will be the successor. The first CPU is the BLOOMFIELD with EIGHT CORES.
    By the time of Nehalem-C (name given to the 32 nm shrink of Nehalem), QUAD CORE will be the new MAINSTREAM processors while DUAL CORE will be LOW END and OCTO CORE will be the new HIGH END.

    Can't wait for Q4 2008. =p


    P.S.
    AMD code name their processors nicely: Antares and Altair. That's so much nicer than Intel's own.

    But my favourite names will always be the SLEDGEHAMMER (an Opteron) for AMD and COPPERMINE (Pentium III) for Intel.
    xD

    What the fuck in a bucket?! 1.4GHz on the ram?! Christ!

    I thought the quad wasn't slated till 2007? How's it comparing to conroe after such a short release time? :S

    I still think that Dewar Flask cooling system you posted before was the coolest looking system I've ever seen.

    Also... I think you should trademark 'crazyclock'. XD

    The Core 2 Extreme QX6700 came out a couple of days ago and is already widely available:
    http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...ufacture=Intel
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...CP1-DUO-QX6700
    And etc.

    Here's a good review from one of my fave sites:
    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/200..._qx6700/1.html
    (I just wish Wil Harris himself did that review).


    Edit:
    Yeah, 1.4GHz on DDR2 is really incredible since it was once thought that only DDR3 could do that.

    Edit 2:
    If anyone has a contact at Intel/AMD/NVIDIA, please have them ship engineering samples to me. =p
    I already have a friend working for ATI (they are like 40 minutes away).

    haha. Yeah, I wish I knew people there.

    I am a little worried about AMD here though... hope they don't fall too far behind cleaning ATI up (as they so closely affiliate themselves now... ati.amd.com). They're even renaming a chunk of ATI's chips now. :/

    The 4x4 sounded pretty cool, but now that I look at it, it seems more like something to stave off intel just a bit while they get there next chips ready for production.

    The aproaches of the two seem interesting though. The 2x6MB shared for Intel, and the 4x512KB with the 2MB L3 for AMD. While the independence sounds good from the AMD end, I wonder if it will make it do extra work though, kinda killing whatever you may or may not gain? :/

    Only really fun thing I've heard from the AMD corner is the Torrenza bus add on. Developer's dropping their own co-processors in to handle specific data types. While from the sounds of it right now, it's more geared towards business and servers, I really won't be that surprised if we some offering from it to go with the ATI cards. Maybe won't need to get a PhyX card after all. (Ok, I know that's about as long a shot as getting a Cell computer in the next few years, but I can dream).

    All Intel really has to say is 45nm... They're kinda just winning with that. XD

    And you know that's nuts? Since Penryn will be based on Merom rather than Conroe, we can expect low, low TDPs of less than 70W for quad-cores.

    Wait, Merom is the Portable Core processor line... Fuck an A.

    Are they going to migrate conroe design up to the Xeons then to replace the Woodcrest design (even though I believe that Woodcrest already is core 2 based in design)?

    It just seems like if the Conroe is performing so well already, and they're shitcanning it for a mobile product, then why not just slap a Merom in now and jump the clock up (as you know Penryn will just be an overclocker's soggy dream come true anyway with a 70W TDP or around there)?

    Mobile products have allways seemed like cars with cadalidic converters on them to me.

    Merom is based on Conroe, newb. =p

    They are going the Merom way since it is technically more advanced (even shorter pipelines) and a way lower power consumption.


    Remember:

    Yonah --> Conroe --> Merom --> Wolfsdale.


    The reason why Merom isn't as fast as a Conroe is because of the lower FSB, but imagine the power consumption and efficiency of Merom at 1333MHz FSB and that's Wolfsdale.

    Also, don't forget that the Core architecture is based entirely on Pentium III and Pentium M (mobile).

    Ah and Woodcrest is just a Conroe at 1333MHz FSB with the ability to be used with another one.

    So the bus is my cadalitic converter, not the chip. XD

    Yeah, I remember it's based off M chips. I remember all to well because it was something like 2 months after my laptop was purchased with a Pentium M in it, the fucking mobile duo's came out. ><

    And guess what doesn't work in a Pentium M slot... XD

    Oh well, it's a fuck'n laptop, not a horse of a computer. (even though it is a 'desktop replacement' model... my ass, but I'd hate to use anything less)

    Damn I'm glad I'm not building a computer for a while though... this release schedual is so fast, no matter when I'd build one in the next year or two, I think I'd still be pissed a month later. Seems like ever release from Intel (and to a smaller extent for now, AMD) is by leaps and bounds.

    Same thing for video cards.

    A single 8800GTX is faster than QUAD SLI (two 7950GX2) in many cases.

    While this is crazy, the ATI R600 will have a memory bandwidth of 120GB/s, when the 8800GTX's is about 87GB/s. This could easily obliterate the 8800GTX when it comes out.

    And with RAM too. DDR2-667 just became mainstream and DDR2-1200 has just been released from OCZ a couple of days ago with water cooling.
